New words for Pres. Bush

5,000 Questions... My answers so far...

Revising one of my answers, in light of a stupid move by Bush:

When President Bush unveiled his proposed budget for 2009, one of the first things that jumped out at book lovers was the elimination of funding for the Inexpensive Book Distribution program at Reading Is Fundamental (RIF). According to Carol Rasco, the nonprofit's CEO and president, "Unless Congress reinstates $25.5 million in funding for this program, RIF would not be able to distribute 16 million books annually to the nation's youngest and most at-risk children." The cut would seem particularly misguided given all the hoopla raised throughout 2007 about the importance of getting (and keeping) America's children passionate about reading.

37. What country do you live in and who is the leader of that country? USA, President George W. Bush

If you could say any sentence to the current leader of your country what would it be? "I respect you and your position, don't envy your decisions, and know you are doing the best you can with the present situations." "It would be a very bad move to cut this program; kids need to be encouraged to read!" I'm sure there are other, better, places to cut the budget. Even reducing funding for RIF would be better than eliminating it completely.
